'Love at First Sight' is a poem about love and chance and destiny by the 1996 Polish winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature. Illustrated by Italian artist Beatrice Gasca Queirazza, Szymborska's poem comes to life in entirely new ways for her readers and for lovers everywhere. Szymborska tells of two young lovers bound together in an instant - or were they? As the poem unfolds, the reader's assumptions - like those of the lovers themselves - about certainty and destiny are utterly upended, revealing the paradox and mystery of fate.
